NXNE 2008 in Photos


The NXNE music festival wrapped up last Sunday, and I'm still trying to recuperate from the intense three days I spent jumping from venue to venue, taking in an eclectic mix of shows.

Overall my experience this year at NXNE was memorable. From Monotonix (who gave the craziest in-store performance at Sonic Boom) to Ricca Razor Sharp (who rapped his funny lyrics, full of energy, to a handful of people at The Boat like they were hundreds), NXNE seems to get better every year.

Take a closer look at my experience through my photos after the break.
